Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 31, 2009
Bottle. Pours medium amber with a thin off-white head that quickly reduces to a razor-thin ring, spotty/ropey lacing. Nose is soft caramel malt, buttery corn-on-the-cob, grass, tired hops. Flavors of grassy hops, citrus, malt. Seems a bit buttery on the palate, as well as a bit caramelly thanks to the malt. Nice, appropriate amber ale that I wouldn’t say no to if I ever should find myself in Newfoundland.

I cellared this for three months to bring out the finer qualities. Nice amber beer with decent carbs and a small rocky tan head with some slippery lacing. Aroma ok with biscuity malts, some dark fruit, a touch of stink and the slightest hint of smoke - that’s probally due to the brewery being forced to use cigarette butts in the filtering system because of the failing economy. Taste was really good. The hops were a bit too strong but mixed in with the malts it’s not bad at all. The malts are not the best but there enough of them to give a good ammount of flavour overall. There is a faint hint of oxydization but nothing to slice your wrists over. Mouthfeel is weak and a bit on the rough side. There is a bad tasting bitter aftertaste. My belch sounded like rocks getting pulzerized with a sledgehammer.

Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 5, 2009
Crystal clear honey brown, fairly large head with amazing retention, this beer looks way better then I ever imagined it would. Peanuts!!!! I swear I smell peanuts. Slightly sour smelling, what the hell where did the smell go after I inhaled the sour peanut smell all the sent vanished, where did it go? This beer feels soft and thick, very creepy feeling, yuck. The taste is watery and nutty, but it pretty much taste like nothing, hello taste where are you. The only way I can describe the taste of this beer is bland and just plain old sucks, I guess it could be worse but I don’t see how, this was very close to getting the dishonorable dump down the sink, thank god this was a free beer

aromas of caramel and apple. nice orange-brown colour, with short-lived off-white head. Tastes of caramel, with some grassy notes, light spices and some nice bitter on the back-end. you’ll notice the quality of this one really deteriorates as the temperature falls. Overall, a great session beer, that’s easy to come by in newfoundland!

beerbill (3619) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUN 20, 2008
341 ml bottle courtesy of a trade with mullet2007. Pours a clear amber with a moderate linen white head that lasted through the first third of the glass and left patchy lace. Light aroma of malt along with a few whisps of fruit. The flavor is more definitive with malt that has some earthiness to it. Lightly bitter at the finish. This is a very solid and refreshing amber ale that is very easy to drink. Very sessionable.

dchmela (3078) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2008
12 oz bottle courtesy Mullet2007. Pours out a nice clear amber with a thick frothy head. Malty, doughy, fruity citrus hop aroma. Malty taste with a nice sweetness, mixed with a hoppy bitterness. Creamy body with a faint bitterness in the finish. This is a solid amber ale and much better than I thought it would be.

amber in color, duh! nose is crystal malt, and a touch of hops. Medium malty flavour, pretty basic canadian amber ale, not fancy, but good drinking.

DuffMan (10549) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 3, 2008
Clear light amber brown. Straight-shooting crystal malt amber with an earthy hop element. Not bad.

3.3
glennmastrange (2897) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2008
Draught. Moderate malt aromas of bread, cereal and caramel, very light hint of herbs for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with honey and brown sugar in the background. Head is small, creamy white, with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear honey. Flavor starts lightly sweet and acidic, and finishes lightly acidic and light to moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery but slightly slick and it has a soft carbonation. A very good smooth beer.
